The OnePlus 7 Pro has finally launched, and Twitter users have been keen to pass their verdict on the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of the new flagship.
OnePlus has a famously vocal fanbase, and while most were thrilled with the new launch, the company still had its critics — as much for what its event did include as for what it didn’t.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a triple rear camera with a main 48-megapixel sensor, and OnePlus claim it’s so good that it managed to shoot the picture that was used for this incredible National Geographic magazine cover:

But many people were left less than satisfied by the lack of essential features, such as an IP rating and a headphone jack:
In particular, this cheeky user was dead disappointed by the lack of wireless charging:
Another criticised omission was the lack of a USB-C adaptor for earphones (OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 are included in the box instead):
Despite all these cost-cutting measures, some users were put off by the launch price (the highest-ever for a OnePlus device), and fear the cost of later models in the series:
But at least OnePlus seems to be happy:
